ASUU To Appeal Industrial Court Judgment Terminating 7 Months Strike Action

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has vowed to appeal an order of the National Industrial Court directing the striking lecturers to immediately end the seven months strike and resume work.

This was made known in a statement on Wednesday by the Chairman of the union’s Lagos State zone, Adelaja Odukoya.

ASUU’s National President, Prof. Emmanuel Osodeke, on Wednesday, a few hours after the industrial court issued the order, revealed that the union’s leadership would meet to discuss the court’s ruling.

The National Industrial Court earlier ordered the immediate end of the strike that started on February 14 this year and directed the immediate reopening of universities across the country.

The union said it had started gathering its lawyers led by a popular human rights activist, Femi Falana (SAN) to file an appeal to challenge the judgment. It, therefore, called on its members to remain calm and united to fight till the end.
